Flapjack fun this Friday

September 30th 10:09am, 2010

093010_pancakesRight now, the young ladies of The Rotary Club of Webster Groves are primping and preening before their mirrors, practicing their speeches and covering themselves in authentic maple syrup. That’s what it takes to become a pancake queen.

Okay, maybe it’s just a few dabs of syrup behind the ears and on the pulse points, but still, this is the 50th anniversary of The Webster Groves Rotary Club All You Can Eat Pancake Festival, and folks are getting into it.

The rotary club muckety-mucks will choose one enthusiastic young gal from their burg to wear the sash and tiara. While there aren’t quite specific qualifications for being named queen (just a little luck and lots of syrup), the lucky lady will get to carry a unique “bejeweled, majestic-looking spatula,” explained club president Dick Sant.

You can see the newly anointed Pancake Queen at the rotary club’s festival this Friday. The club will serve up pancakes, sausage, eggs and applesauce for lunch from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and for dinner from 4 to 8 p.m. Meals are served at the Webster Hills United Methodist Church Christian Life Center at 1333 W. Lockwood Ave.

The money collected will fund local scholarships and charities. You can be a part of the pancake-eating fun for just eight bucks for adults, four bucks for kids. For tickets, call Sant at 314.800.8169.

    You forgot to mention that this is the official kick off of Webster Groves’ fall social season.

    You, my friend, are obviously unaware of what Rotary is and does. These incredibly charitable and honorable rotarians are not to be mocked or called muckety mucks or explained to have poured syrup on themselves in some strange seductive move to win a contest. They are mostly in their sixties and seventies you idiot. This is embarrassing for you, as most people know who and what Rotary is. You should go to it, pay for your cakes and apologize.
